The six-lake slab consists of six former gravel pits and has been a lavish renaturation in the 1960s, the green lung of Duisburg. Cycle paths, hiking trails, peaceful woodland, beautiful lake views, large playgrounds, an outdoor pool and a camping meadow make the Six Lakes Plate a popular destination for walkers, families and nature lovers.

The Duisburg Sechs-Seen-Platte is a recreation area consisting of six lakes and consists of the lakes: Wambachsee, Masurensee, Böllertsee, Wolfssee, Wildförstersee and Haubachsee.
The lakes have a total water surface of about 150 hectares. The entire area covers an area of around 283 hectares and has a network of hiking trails of 18 kilometers.
The Sechs-Seen-Platte was created from the gravel dredging of Count Spee at Heltorf Castle. The Haubachsee was only fully dredged in 2001.
Wolfsberg, located on Wolfssee, was created in 1967 from the heap of sand, gravel and rubble on parts of a former firing range and parts of a former Luftwaffe ammunition depot. There was a 21-meter-high wooden observation tower on top of the mountain, which was burned in July 2002. A 23 meter high steel new building was inaugurated in its place in March 2006.

"You can plan on the Sechs-Seen-Platte between a round around the Wolfs- and Wildförsteree lakes of around one and a half hours including a visit to the observation tower to many wonderful hours on the shore, on the beach or in the water."
